Wordpress Overview

What is Wordpress?

WordPress is a website and blog creation and publishing platform with tools for aesthetic designing, visitor tracking, content storage and upload, and more. With WordPress users can get a blog or website, or both, started in very little time, using only an email address. Users get their own WordPress.com address (like you.wordpress.com), 3 gigabytes of free file storage, and a selection of pre-made, free, and customizable designs for the blog, and many other features.

When setting up a WordPress website, users can add a custom domain and manage design, layout, and content from within the platform. Written content can be easily added and work is automatically saved every few seconds to avoid loss of content. The drag and drop editor facilitates the addition of images or videos into posts and pages, and users can create photo galleries, embed audio, and stream video from their website. With WordPress, users can blog as much as they want for free, and blogs and websites can be public to the world or private for just friends.

Additional features of WordPress include built-in social sharing to spread the word of new posts or content, in-depth statistics and visual analytics to gain insight into website visitors and demographics, and search engine optimization (SEO) tools to help new visitors find the website.

The best platform for your online business

I've been using Wordpress for over 2 years and I don't leave this platform for anything. It is the platform that I use in my digital business and it is certainly the one that offers the best support and customization possibilities to meet my needs. I can use the platform alone, even without the help of a professional developer. It's super easy to use! I highly recommend it!

Best way to make a webpage or more is to use Wordpress

Really great to use, simple yet scalable. I've seen solutions for small companies, and enterprise websites made with Wordpress.
It is Swiss army knife for building Webpages. Since elementor plugin was released you don neet any HTML or PHP knowledge. Making websites becomes drag and drop puzzle.

Pros

WordPress allows to quickly setup and go live with few customization, I like its installation facility with too easy to use.

It has n number of plugin which are free and as well as premium version as well, you may choose accordingly to your requirement.

Its best for blogging purpose or for personal website, its easy to maintain and upgrade-able.

Cons

Its become complicated if you install multiple plugin without knowing is it compatible or not. So make sure you must update only when you need to update it.

Otherwise its very convenient to use and maintain through out the development stages. It allows to share plugins or code to reuse in other project as well.

i've been using wordpress for 6+ years and out of most of the website builders out there wordpress offers the best user experience for the cost. I highly recommend looking into wordpress if you are considering building a website.

Pros

Wordpress offers everything you could possibly need when it comes to building an basic to advanced website as well as e-commerce. There is a full archive of templates and themes to pick from that allows you to create a genuine website that doesn't look like all the other template based websites out there. Aside from the themes and template when it comes to building the site, you have access to a massive archive of plugins that allows you to add all sorts of different functions and features.

Cons

the biggest issue i have with Wordpress is the most recent update they made "Gutenberg". It changed how you go about editing pages in the back end of the site and i understand what they are trying to do, but it's still a little clunky and they need to refine it.

I have built many WordPress websites for clients, as well as helped other clients update or upgrade their sites and/or add new content and features.

Pros

Since it is rather ubiquitous, hosting platforms have created ways to work with WordPress sites more efficiently. Also, WordPress offers a vast array of options for layout, design, features and functionality due to its open source format.

Cons

WordPress made a significant leap in software offerings and hardware demands, beginning in 2018, but advancing in 2019 that have led to many websites breaking, being quite out-of-date and unstable, and/or incompatibility issues between hosting platforms, PHP versions, WordPress core, theme, and plugins. Altogether, the WordPress platform has become too complex and too costly for the small business owner, even though that is a target demographic it was created to serve. Nowadays, hosting plans are increasing in cost, backup plans are required, security plans are becoming more necessary, and email plans of course are increasing in cost as well, not to mention increasing costs of feature-rich, but now expected, themes and plugins. The complexity of managing so many aspects of a site that need to be kept up-to-date (and updated or even upgraded often), along with the rising costs and tools needed to support a WordPress website are, together, making WordPress a less effective solution for small businesses. If this continues, I see that 10 years from now something else will have replaced it. I am, of course, hoping that WordPress can figure out how to solve these challenges and simplify the web maintenance incompatibility issues.

I can use the platform alone, even without the help of a professional developer. It's super easy to use! I highly recommend it!

Pros

It is the best and biggest platform for creating content I have ever known. Wordpress allows you to have very high quality websites, for a super symbolic price. The platform offers several types of Plugins to improve your business, in addition to offering super complete layouts and easy to change, either in the free option or in paid options. Virtually everything within wordpress is customizable to meet the user's needs and certainly even for those who do not have much knowledge on WEB platforms, it is a product that helps a lot and has a super interesting learning curve. It's super intuitive and anyone can set up their business, even without the help of a professional or developer. In addition, it is a platform widely used worldwide, which allows much material on wordpress to be developed on the internet. It's the best!

Cons

There's nothing I don't like about Wordpress, it's the platform I use in my digital business and I don't change it for another.

Pros

When you type in Wordpress in google, youtube or bing in matter of seconds you get basic, advanced or ninja level tutorials how to make a webpage.
When you learn basics (2-3 weeks) you can make decent webpages for allmost anybody.
Superb plugin/theme and forum support make this product superior to any other product.
I never encounter problem which i could not figure out with fer minutes or hours of googleing.

Cons

Usage depends on speed of hosting servers. I had different versions and different solutions implemented.
I found out that 90% of problems are hosting related, other 10% is related for not buying some premium features.
